It's the Hispanic Heritage Month at FANDOM! It's worth noting that Wasteland, 33 years ago, was one of the first games to allow players to create Hispanic characters with the nationality selection. What's more, the starting Hispanic character, Snake Vargas, eventually became one of the most important movers and shakers of the Arizona wasteland, saving the world twice over as a Desert Ranger!

The Kodiak is the Desert Rangers' main vehicle in Wasteland 3, a scrappy all terrain armored personnel carrier with a heavy roof-mounted weapon that is one of the few vehicles that weren't destroyed at the Eleven Mile Dam by the Dorseys ambush.


The Kodiak is used to transport Team November across Colorado, navigating its snowed-in reaches with ease thanks to its heavy duty tracks. With the weapon on its roof, it can also provide heavy duty support wherever it's needed.


See Kodiak upgrades for a full list. The Kodiak can be upgraded and heavily customized. Upgrades include:

  • Chassis (necessary for protecting against radiation)
  • Armor: Exactly what says on the tin.
  • Weapons: Self-explanatory
  • AI module: Single upgrade to make it more powerful.

Cosmetic customization encompass:

  • Paintjobs
  • Treads
  • Hood ornaments
  • Horns
  • Bumpers
